Seven Facts for Fracking Deniers
American Thinker, by Jeffrey Folks

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 7/10/2014 10:18:23 AM

At a recent town hall meeting in Edmond, Oklahoma, local citizens gathered to discuss the possible connection between fracking and increased seismic activity in their area. According to one published report, members of the audience left “disappointed” that no consensus had been reached linking fracking and seismic activity. (snip)Clearly, the left is engaged in an all-out effort to smear the oil and gas industry by spreading misinformation and fostering confusion – such as ignoring the difference between fracking itself and wastewater injection. The intent of this effort is to cripple the U.S. economy by depriving it of an efficient and

If there is a connection between hydraulic fracturing and earth tremblers then most of the nation should shaking, rattling, and rolling.

The marked increase in earthquakes we´ve been having here in Oklahoma is simply due to the Founding Fathers rolling over in their graves at what is happening here in the US.

The people are such slothful idiots. They will not study the issue or the subject. They want to hear "sound bites" and slogans and talking points. I know fracking inside and out. It´s been going on for almost half a century. Every well in West Texas has been fracked at least twice...both oil and gas wells. In fact, after a well is completed, the first post drilling operation is a mandatory frack job to open the well. All fractures are opened by high pressure in the production zone and then a gel containing sand is pumped into the fractures...this is called "propant" because the sand squeezes into the tiny rock fractures and props the cracks open so the product, oil or gas or both, can flow to the well opening. It does not contaminate ground water, it does not cause earth quakes, it does not open the ground to swallow precious aquifers.

But, telling those goons who are on the left and who listen to their favorite sources of information, like Susan Sarandon and Matt Damon, is pointless. They are followers of trends, not intelligent thinking human beings. Just very useful idiots, as Stalin described them.

Of course they are related. What difference does it make since the quakes are so small most can´t even be felt. Pumping water out also makes quakes as does damming up rivers and making large heavy lakes. Everything is related.

From everything I´ve read, I suspect the cause is more closely related to pumping down the aquifers than fracking (fracking is way deeper and leaves behind a pretty much intact rock support for all the land above - even though that rock has cracks throughout. Pumping out the more shallow aquifers often leaves behind relatively unsupported cavern roofs - which can collapse and rattle the ground above.

Here is another fact. The boom in cheap, fracked natural gas, displacing coal, has dropped overall CO2 emissions in the US. U.S. energy-related carbon emissions are 10 percent below 2005 levels.

Technology has once again improved supply, efficiency, and environmental conditions. You would think that lefties would be cheering this but NO WAY. The only way they applaud lowered emissions is if it is achieved through deprivation and suffering. Is that screwed up or what?

In other words, pumping down the aquifers to grow the corn used for the alcohol in gasohol blends are causing earthquakes. Better premise than fracking causing earthquakes.

During the earliest campaign to teach children about “good and bad touch” one of my children was fascinated by the subject and appointed herself as a bad touch detective.

Doesn’t anyone in the White House bother to think about the metaphors they use? In the wake of the awful, disgusting, hideous, XXX rated (for violence) video of David Haines being beheaded, carving his head off his shoulders, Barack Obama releases a statement with the most inappropriate metaphor possible: The United States stands shoulder to shoulder tonight with our close friend and ally in grief and resolve.

Nations are much like living organisms. One fundamental function of life is to tell the difference between friends and foes. When a nation fails to do that it will soon die. For more than two centuries the United States has known how to tell friend from foe, because we’ve had a robust sense of identity -- we understood how “a nation conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal” would be tested over and over again, by enemies foreign and domestic, to see “whether any nation so conceived and so dedicated can long endure.” The West

The Ivanpah solar generating plant is located in California about 50 miles from Las Vegas near the California-Nevada border. 173,000 mirrors are used to concentrate the sun on 3 boiler-towers where water is turned into steam to drive turbines and generate electricity. The mirrors track the sun and concentrate sunlight so that the intensity of light falling on the boiler-towers is about 500 times stronger than sunlight -- a death ray. If a person were to be illuminated by this death ray, 3rd degree burns would follow within a few seconds. Insects that wander into the kill zone are quickly

The Democratic Party and the mainstream media joined to run interference for Barack Obama when he became a national figure. Obama was painted as a charismatic, competent, new kind of politician. The passage of time destroyed this image. Now, the public increasingly sees Obama as incompetent, untrustworthy and unmotivated. Supporters are now in an awkward position. Do they continue to support what is increasingly seen as an inept president or do they turn against him? Continuing the subterfuge is dangerous. Lending credibility to an incredible man is a certain way to destroy one’s own validity. Obama, once considered a savior and asset

If we should be attacked by terrorists who come across our unprotected, undefended southern border, and should Americans die in any such attack, we would do well to understand for what those lives were lost. They would have been spent for the ability of illegal aliens to cast illegal votes for politicians doing illegal things. While both parties are to some degree to blame for the porousness of our southern border, the party that has the singular ability to solve the problem via the levers of government, the Democrats, is ensuring that the problem becomes so pervasive and vast that

Barack Obama stands apart from other modern American Presidents in many ways. (snip)the widespread view that he is the coolest President ever. This supernal coolness is not new. In his autobiography, Dreams From My Father, the President wrote that in his teenage years “I tried my best to be cool at all times” (p. 82). However, leaving aside the contradiction inherent in trying to be cool, it is possible that Barack Obama’s teenage experiences may have left him psychologically, and perhaps even neurologically, incapable of performing fundamental tasks of his current position. Much of the appeal of coolness is its

Former President George W. Bush put together a 48 member coalition for the Iraq War in 2003. 40 of those members supported military operations and 37 provided some number troops. In April 2003, the list was updated to include 49 countries, though it was reduced to 48 after Costa Rica objected to its inclusion. Of the 48 states on the list, three contributed troops to the invasion force (the United Kingdom, Australia and Poland). An additional 37 countries provided some number of troops to support military operations after the invasion was complete. Despite these numbers the liberal media continues to push the lie

Voter turnout during last month´s primary races was a little too good in some counties, Arizona elections officials said Friday. Some precincts in northern Arizona tallied more ballots cast than there are registered voters, the Arizona Capitol Times reported. According to officials, errors made by poll workers and elections officials in Apache and Navajo counties led to the miscalculations. Initial reports from some precincts showed a turnout of anywhere from 200 to 400 percent. In Apache County, the Puerco West precinct reportedly had 100 votes cast, but only 23 voters are registered there. The voter turnout added up to 434

Is a mutiny happening around President Obama? It appears possible that the president may not have made two of his most recent decisions with complete free will. The announcement that he would delay his immigration initiative until after the election and his formal announcement that the United States would take military action against the Islamic State could have been coerced. Maybe Democratic leaders in Congress and a few members of the Obama team have had it. Could it be that, after President Obama briefed Democrats in Congress on the immigration plan, they balked? Maybe the president was told that, if he
